David Coon is an excellent teacher, and I have been using everything I learned from him since attending the workshop.
Attending the intensive, Qigong for Back Pain, was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in recent years. I learned breathing techniques, exercises for specific areas of back pain, and beginning techniques for energetic healing, called Medical Qigong. David Coon is an excellent teacher, and I have been using everything I learned from him since attending the workshop. Equally important, he is an accomplished healer. I am still aware of a shift in my own subtle energy patterns that began at the workshop.

It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented teacher come in at this point in my life.I truly enjoyed attending David Coon’s Medical Qigong Intensive seminar in Westminster Colorado! I am an acupuncturist and have studied qigong before this weekend. I always felt like I had a lot of holes in my qigong training, and there were many things I did not understand. David did a wonderful job of explaining and demonstrating everything. I’ve walked away feeling like my understanding has grown a great deal.It is an honor to have such a passionate and talented teacher come in at this point in my life. We had people from all walks of life in our class from healing professionals, to retired people, to people who work in the corporate world with no qigong experience. The exercises are simple enough for everyone. I can easily teach them to my clients, and also get a great deal out of doing them myself. I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone who is thinking about learning qigong! and also to anyone who has studied it for a long time!

Qigong and David Coon have dramatically changed my life.
Qigong and David Coon have dramatically changed my life. Anyone that knows me can testify to how much I've battered my body the last 25 years. 6 years ago I had brain surgery to remove a benign tumor from behind my left ear. They severed my acoustic nerve to remove it and nicking my optic nerve leaving me completely deaf on the left side as well as extremely light sensitive. I've had balance and seizure like episodes ever since. After multiple injuries (a 3rd left knee ACL replacement, bent sacrum, separated right shoulder, torn pelvic tendons and stem cell injections, to name a few) and multiple family deaths (including my father and later followed by my young nephews in a tragic house fire) I came to David defeated, both physically and mentally. I was a volatile, crumpled ball of intense energy and anger, spiraling in a deep, dark place, who was ready to implode at any time.
Since mid-August, 2017, Qigong and David have helped me become an entirely different person. My balance has returned and I'm able to move around relatively pain free. I couldn't walk two blocks before and can hike a few miles now. My anxiety has dropped significantly, from totally spun out 110% to relatively calm currently, I'll give it 35% with a few spikes. My anger issues have peacefully been dissolving leaving much more forgiveness and care. Most importantly, I'm beginning to find my heart which is buried deep in the rocks surrounding it. I will forever be grateful for David and his teachings through Qigong Awareness. It's unbelievable how far I've come as a person in such a short period of time. I'm excited for further advancements! Thank you David!!

Live your best life and own your greatness. Qigong is a way…..
"Sometimes in your life, you are inspired to change and become extraordinary. At 61 years old, I received my Red Belt in Tae Kwon-Do and also became a Qigong Instructor and Medical Qigong Practioner through Qigong Awareness and David J. Coon. My journey began in 2002, when I met David in the middle of a divorce and a gallbladder attack. I was sick and felt helpless in changing my life. The doctors wanted to remove my gallbladder, however with David's help I healed my gallbladder with the practices of Medical Qigong. I began taking every Qigong class and workshop that David offered. I also began the practice of Tae Kwon-Do taught by David and tested for my Red Belt with Grand Master Kwon Jae-Hwa. It was a mental, emotional, physical training and my life changed in ways that I never thought imaginable. Live your best life and own your greatness. Qigong is a way..... "

Thanks to David, my story is now a story of healing, health, and prosperity.
I have been training with David for almost a year now. When David moved to Wilmington, I had been practicing Qigong sporadically for a month or so with an instructor who was in David’s certification program. Qigong seemed cool, but I had not had any previous experience with energy work and was, admittedly, skeptical. However, I had had breast cancer 3 times and was fed up with the options that Western medicine offered. I was overwhelmed with side effects and took a handful of pills a couple of times a day. When the cancer returned the third time, I was medical retired from the Army and my physical condition has deteriorated from being very physically fit to barely being able to walk a mile.
In the past year, I have trained with David in Qigong classes, Intensives, and private sessions, as well as participating in his healing clinics. Since beginning training, I have been able to stop taking 7 different prescription medications, lost 20 lbs., can run 5 miles, and am a certified Level 1 Qigong Instructor. The difference in my physical, emotional, and spiritual well being has been phenomenal. David is an amazing healer, instructor, and coach. My story for the past 8 years has been a story of cancer. Thanks to David, my story is now a story of healing, health, and prosperity.

Absolutely best course I have ever taken…Absolutely best course I have ever taken. And I have studied energy work for decades. The subject matter is sorely needed, The management and self cultivation practices is very much needed by energy workers. The teaching style was thorough, direct and very much appreciated. Having taken so many professional courses I hate wasting my time in classes that net little information. I have incorporated what I learned from the Medical Qigong workshop last June in both my acupuncture practice and energy practices and it is making a. Profound difference. Thank you for making this available and offering it at an affordable price.

For me, this ‘Father of Acupuncture’ has already had a very deep impact and has taken my already successful 20+ year Massage practice to the next level of healing.
For any Therapist or Practitioner feeling stuck or unsure about which direction that they want their practice headed, this (Medical Qi Gong) may be the perfect solution. For me, this 'Father of Acupuncture' has already had a very deep impact and has taken my already successful 20+ year Massage practice to the next level of healing. I highly recommend David's teaching style and this Energy infused ancient art of cultivating Chi and using it for yourself and others.

My body has become, grounded, stronger, and more fluid, my mind and spirit lighter and brighter!
"During my life i have tried - and learned from - many forms of energy work. But these past months learning from you has been a revelation, taking me to new levels of inner awareness, strength and health.
The recent two day, Medical Qigong Intensive was a quantum leap forward in every way. So much learned and practiced in that short time. Your regular healing clinics and meditation sessions have opened and caused me to become aware of what I need to address in myself, to use awareness and this wonderful energy to heal myself.
In the months of class practice, my body has become, grounded, stronger, and more fluid, my mind and spirit lighter and brighter! You teach with such energy, passion, gentleness, humor and clarity, enabling me to absorb what you’re imparting on every level.
Thank you for your dedication and for offering the gift of your invaluable knowledge and experience."

My Medical Qigong Intensive course was transformational for me personally and professionally.
"My Medical Qigong Intensive course was transformational for me personally and professionally.
Personally, I was able to work through a block that had me bound for decades. It was during one of the Qigong exercises that this issue began to unravel for me. I found myself totally present to my pain and felt a safe sacred space to let it come up and out. When the physical exercise was over, I was supported to process this in a very masterful way. I discovered that I was in my own jail and that I also held the key. Thank you David for helping me to heal this long-standing issue. This healing experience was a surprise and a blessing.
Professionally, I received the confidence to practice the practice of Medical Qigong in groups with my patients and with the public starting right away. David is generous with his knowledge. I appreciate his strength, his wit, his focus, his practical way of bringing his mastery out and his passion to help humanity."
